KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)--Soon you'll be seeing Trooper Lowell Russell's picture on cars around town.
One of his many friends, Chris Poe, started a bumper sticker campaign to urge people to pray for Russell.
A tractor trailer driver hit Trooper Russell last week on I-40.
Poe already has 100 orders for the bumper stickers.
They are free, but you can give a donation.
Chris Poe says, "The hope is that no one can turn their head without seeing a bumper sticker and the people that don't know Lowell will see the sticker and pray for him. The secondary hope would be raise money for Lowell and for Cory for the family."
Two local companies printed the stickers Monday.
Poe is giving them to Trooper Russell Monday night at the hospital.
You can also get the bumper stickers next weekend at Sweetwater Flea Market.
